. where ''true education" means more than the pursual of a 
certain course of study, 



. where the Oakwood program of Christian education is 
focused both on Christian growth and academic excel- 
lence. 



. . where students from scores of states and foreign lands 
"enter to learn and depart to serve," and 



. . where both teacher and student find a common bond of 
unity as "companions in learning and searching for 
truth."

INSTITUTIONAL MISSION 

Oakwood College, a four-year undergraduate, church-related, liberal 
arts institution founded in 1896 in the city of Huntsville, Alabama, is 
historically committed to providing a unique and challenging educational 
opportunity for students who exhibit academic potential but whose needs for ^ 

training stem from educational and socio-economic deprivation. The Col- 
lege has historically demonstrated its philosophy that meaningful education L« 
is more than the pursual of a certain course of study. It, therefore, endeavors 
to foster the holistic view of educating the whole being through the harmoni- «» 
ous development of the physical, cultural, intellectual, mental, and spiritual 
faculties . 

The mission of the College inheres in the provision of a liberal, yet 
functional curriculum program in arts and sciences, and in professional 
preparation in education and business. Such liberal, professional, and pre- 
professional programs are further complemented by experiential and occu- 
pational learning in selected fields and vocations. 

Finding in the Christian faith the true basis for understanding all human p 

experiences, Oakwood accepts the responsibihty of achieving in each stu- j 

dent academic excellence but acknowledges the further obligation to main- *^ 

tain and exemplify Christian commitment in scholarships and in all institu- 
tional endeavors. Throughout its programs of instruction, research, and 
public service, the College seeks to enlighten the mind, to enhance the 
quality of personality, to enable each individual, out of Christian love and 
concern, to serve mankind creatively, responsibly, and humanely, and to 
enkindle a never-ending search for knowledge and truth. 

Because of its historic commitment to serve those who exhibit high 
academic potential but are deprived of educational enrichment, the College 
provides a strong basic educational and support program through academic 
advising and counseling. To meet the needs of its gifted and average 
students , Oakwood College further shares with other institutions the univer- 
sal concerns of higher education: a teaching function designed to develop 
highly skilled individuals dedicated to the improvement of life in American 
society through service to the community. Toward this end, the College 
seeks to attract qualified and dedicated faculty and encourages through them 
experimentation with traditional and nontraditional educational methods and 
instructional strategies to increase the quality and productivity of its educa- 
tional services. 

Oakwood College is also committed to serving the needs of the under- 
prepared student by ( 1) providing a program for the elimination of deficits in 
basic skills essential for a college education, (2) providing guidance and j- 

counseling for that group of students which focus upon those dimensions I 

which might be and often are inhibitive of success; and (3) using varied ■»- 

instructional approaches. It is the Instimtion's design that through these 
techniques the underprepared student will acquire the necessary self- 
confidence and tools to successfully complete programs focused on tradi- 



[

tional as well as nontraditional career pursuits or programs leading to 
graduate or professional education. 

Recognizing the influence of a suitable environment upon learning and 
the assurance of achieving the mission described above, the College seeks to 
provide a physical environment and appropriate academic and student sup- 
port systems to facilitate the variety of human interaction and relationships 
essential for learning, and to provide programs and facilities which allow for 
continuous evaluation, growth, and expansion of the Institution. 

GOALS 

The mission of Oak wood College can be expressed in six general goals: 
spiritual, intellectual, cultural, personal adjustment, vocational, andphysi- 
cal. ' 

. Spiritual: To provide a spiritual environment and religious instruc- 
tion that will enable the student to reflect fully the image of Jesus 
Christ through emphasis on the development of character and talent, 
the nobililty of ambition, the keenness of perception with sound 
judgment, so that the student is prepared to render unselfish service 
to God and man. 

Intellectual: To provide academic programs and comprehensive 
curricula made up of a broad range of degree programs which will 
allow each student to acquire knowledge and skills to grow person- 
ally, socially, academically, and professionally, and to meet their 
needs and societal demands. 

Cultural: Enrich the lives of community residents and students by 
serving as a cultural and educational center, offering cultural and 
recreational programs of interest and value. 
Personal Adjustment: To provide opportunities which will help 
students identify, clarify, and develop their aesthetic, moral, and 
spiritual values and philosophy, through supportive student services 
programs which facilitate growth and success in the academic, 
social, economic, and spiritual community. 
Vocational: To provide for the students courses which will impart 
skills and knowledge in certain vocations best suited to the students' 
interests and aptitudes, while teaching them the dignity of labor 
through provisions of on-campus work opportunities and courses 
which provide field experiences which aid in their choice of a 
vocation.

with recreational activities that will give an understanding of and 
encourage proper care of the body. Consistency in the teaching of 
good health habits is carried throughout the College's food and

GOVERNING STANDARDS 

It is the purpose of the College to develop strong men and women with 
high standards of scholarship and the self-discipline necessary for Christian 
leadership. 

The campus government and discipline, therefore, are founded upon 
the principle that character building is the highest object of education and 
that a good name, standing for integrity, honor, and godliness, is the 
objective alike of the student for himself and of the College for him. 

Oakwood College is a Seventh-day Adventist college established to 
provide a Christian environment in which students may prepare themselves 
for service at home and in other lands. In order to maintain this environment 
certain general rules of conduct apply. 

Student Handbook: In every community there are laws. /? is the respon- 
sibility of every student to secure from the Office of Student Services and to 
read the rules and regulations governing student life at Oakwood College, 
preferably before registration. Familiarity with and acceptance of the re- 
quirements set forth in this book will make life at Oakwood College more 
interesting and certainly more enjoyable. 

A student's standing in a Christian school is based not alone on his 



18 Oak WOOD College 

scholarship attainment but also upon his general conduct and his attitude 
toward the community in which he lives. As a citizen of the college 
communitN the student must realize that he has been admitted to a privileged 
group and that he has no right to work against that group. Any student who 
violates the rules of the College or whose conduct evidences lack of respect 
for the standards maintained by the College may be asked to withdraw. 

STUDENT CITIZENSHIP 

Each individual coming to Oakwood College for the purpose of enter- 
ing any depanment of the College is subject to its super\-ision and jurisdic- 
tion from the time of arrival in Huntsville until his connection is terminated 
by graduation or by any officially approved withdrawal. 

The record of each smdent is reviewed periodically, and his continua- 
tion in college is based upon his attitudes and general conduct, as well as his 
scholastic attainments. 

Listed among the government policies of the College are infractions 

Mhich are considered suspendable and may be cause for dismissal or serious 
disciplinary- action of the first offense. 

Since no smdent who makes a habit of indulging in any of these 
practices would knowingly be accepted at Oakwood College, the first 
infraction may result in dismissal from school. 

A smdent u hose progress or conduct is unsatisfactory" or whose influ- 
ence is detrimental may be asked to withdraw at any time. 

An> smdent dismissed from school withdraws immediately from the 
campus and may be subjected to charges of trespassing should he remm 
without permission from the Administration. 

Lea\e of Absence: Permission for an ordinar}' leave of absence from the 
campus may be obtained from the appropriate Residence Dean. Approval 
must also be obtained from the work superintendent. \Mien a leave of 
absence involves absence from a class, permission must be obtained from 
the Mce President for Academic Affairs. \Mien the leave of absence takes a 
student farther than the cir\' of Huntsville. it must be approved by the Office 
of Smdent Services. Wrinen permission from the parent or guardian for 
travelling must be on file for ever.' smdent requesting a leave of absence. 
Exceptions to this rule are granted only to smdents who are both of legal age 
and self-supporting. In even.' case, working smdents must secure the ap- 
proval of their work superintendent before presenting their requests to their 
respective deans. 

Attendance at Religious Services: Oakwood College is emphatically a 
Christian college. Attendance at evening worships, chapel. Friday evening 
vespers. Sabbath School, and Sabbath morning church senice is a basic 
requirement. 

Use of Vehicles: Since the ownership and the use of an automobile 
frequently mihiate against success in college, smdents are not encouraged to 
bring automobiles with them to the College unless absolutely necessary- .

administration deems necessary for reasons of discipline or under- utilization 
of available space in the residence halls.

spective graduates, full- and part-time jobs within the metropolitan area of 
Huntsville), and DEVELOPMENTAL GUIDANCE (career development, 
human relations, leadership training, and family life education). 

GOALS AND PHILOSOPHY 

The Center's emphasis is on personal development. Its primary goal is 
to help students become more effective in handling and resolving problem 
situations before they become critical by teaching them what to expect and 
how to behave adaptively under most circumstances. It is a preventive 
philosophy which is believed to be most suitable to the needs, beliefs, and 
practices of Seventh-day Adventists and other fundamentally conservative 
Christians. 

The goal for its consulting activities is to facilitate the continuing 
development and maintenance of an optimal collegiate environment for 
learning and individual growth. 

CONFIDENTIALITY 

Personal information regarding specific individuals is held in strictest 
confidence and may not be released without the written consent of the 
persons involved. 

COST 

Professional services to students are given without charge. There are, 
however, charges associated with the computer scoring and analysis of 
diagnostic tests and the administration of the national placement examina- 
tions and CLEP. 

COOPERATIVE EDUCATION 

The Cooperative Education Program (CEP) combines classroom learn- 
ing with actual work experience in community businesses and corporations. 
This is done on an alternating basis in a work setting that closely relates to a 
student's major field of study and his/her career aspiration. 

Benefits. Academic credits are earned in the classroom and on the job. 
In addition, a number of other student needs are met. They are, 1) money to 
pay educational costs and provide for personal necessities; 2) opportunity to 
test the propriety of educational and career goals; 3) opportunity to enrich the 
learning process by applying theoretical concepts to the practical, concrete 
demands of real work situations and their attendant problems; and 4) upon 
graduation, increased employabiJity because of the distinct advantage of 
having a college dtgrte and bona fide work experience in the career of one's 
choice. 

Eligibility. To qualify for the program, students must have completed 
their freshman year and have and maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 
2.50. Transfer students may apply after completing twelve (12) hours in 
residence at Oakwood College. 



22 Oakwood College 



Rate of Pay. Once hired, students are paid by the employing organiza- 
tions at the standard rate for entry level workers or in accordance with their 
individual experience and skills. Under no circumstances should they earn 
less than minimum wage. 

Academic Credit. Up to twelve (12) hours of academic credit may be 
earned for each quarter that you participate in the program. For written 
details on how to qualify for these hours, contact the CounseUng-Placement 
Office or the Office of Academic Affairs. 

The credits earned through participation in CEP are elective credits and 
may be included in the total required for graduation. However, they will 
NOT be deducted from the minimum hours required for the major and/or 
minor. It must be understood that, in most cases, participation in the 
program will entail more than four years of study to complete the require- 
ments for the baccalaureate degree. 

Cooperative Education courses may be identified by the prefix CE. The 
last digit of the number refers to the work period for that year. For example: 
CE 301 - CE 306: First Work Period through Sixth Work Period. 

Where to Apply. Students wishing to apply for CEP should first, 1) 
consult with the Coordinator of Cooperative Education, and 2) submit a 
formal request to the Academic Policies Committee. 

FRESHMAN STUDIES 

The Freshman Studies Program is a composite of diagnostic, instruc- 
tional, and supportive services to first- year students. Its purpose is to 
increase their potential for academic success and personal adjustment to the 
demands of college life. Components of the program include: 
Orientation. 

The week preceding registration for the Fall Quarter of each year is 
known as Freshman Orientation Week. New students admitted to freshman 
status are expected to report as notified and, upon arrival, to participate in 
all of the scheduled activities of the week. These include (a) orientation to the 
academic and residential requirements of the College and the resources that 
are available to assist all students in meeting them successfully; (b) de- p ^ 

velopmental guidance and instruction regarding tasks, skills, and attitudes I 

that are essential for academic and personal success. •^t 

Diagnostic Assessment. 

During Freshman Orientation Week and at the beginning of every 
quarter thereafter, special tests are administered which are required of all 
new freshmen. They are the American College Test (ACT), the Stanford 
Diagnostic Reading Test (SDRT), the California Personality Inventory 
(CPI), and the Mooney Problem Checklist (MPC). 

Results from these tests are used for ( 1) placing students in appropriate 
courses of study; (2) facihtating the development and/or provision of pre- 
scriptive teaching materials and strategies; (3) fulfilhng Alabama state ,p-^l 
requirements for entrance into special programs; and (4) assisting advisors

and counselors in their work of helping students to plan their academic 
programs, evaluate their academic progress, and set realistic personal and 
career goals. Accumulated data will help the College to determine what 
areas of its programs and services needs strengthening and/or modification 
in order to effectively fulfill its commitment to the success of its students . 

Academic Advisement and Program Planning. 

Although their declared interests in specific disciplines will be ac- 
knowledged, first- year students will be encouraged to concentrate on gen- 
eral education requirements for the purpose of academic exploration and 
continuing self-discovery. Freshman advisors, by means of extended inter- 
views and performance reviews throughout the year, will assist in the 
process of confirming or m.odifying the personal interests and aspirations of 
each student. 

Special Services. 

Students with special academic and developmental needs will receive 
appropriate assistance from DLRC, the school's learning resource center. 
Assistance will be in the form of individualized course loads, specialized 
instruction, tutoring, and counseling performed by a dedicated staff of 
professional counselors and selected honor students. Referrals for more 
specialized services will be made as warranted.

ADMISSION OF VETERANS 

The College is approved as an institution qualified to offer education to 
veterans under the provisions of The Veterans Readjustment Act of 1966. 

Admission to full freshman standing is possible for those veterans who, 
failing to meet the entrance requirements in the regular ways, may qualify on 
the following points: 

1 . The candidate must have completed two years of secondary school 
work or its equivalent. 

2. The candidate must take the General Educational Development test, 
making a total score of 225, a minimum of 45 on any one test. 

If the candidate falls below a score of 45 in any one field, he must 
register for at least 1 unit of work on the secondary level in that field. These 
steps must be taken prior to entrance into college. In addition to the ACT, the 
candidate is given the ACE Psychological Examination and the Cooperative 
English test. If satisfactory scores are achieved on this battery of tests, the 
applicant may be admitted to freshman standing. 

Veterans who are ehgible to obtain High School Equivalency certifi- 
cates from a state in which they reside are urged to do so. 

In general, a veteran should secure his Certificate for Education and 
Training from his regional office before coming to college. If the veteran has 
failed to get his certificate and cannot do so in time to get his authorisation 
before the opening date of school, he may file his application through the 
College Counseling Service. Records of Educational Achievement while in

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

Oakwood College is approved by the U.S. Office of Immigration for 
the admission of nonimmigrant students. However, no student should leave 
his country with the intention of enrolling at this college until a letter of 
acceptance and an 1/20 Form have been issued to him by the Office of 
Admissions. To obtain these documents each international student must 
fulfill the following: 

1. Meet the normal college entrance requirement. 

2. Show evidence of proficiency in the English language. 

3 . Submit an official document of financial support. 

4. Submit the required advance deposit. (Contact Admissions Office) . 

Please note also the following immigration regulations: 

A nonimmigrant student applying for admission to the United states for the first time after 
being issued an F-1 (student's) visa, will not be admitted unless he intends to attend the 
school specified in that visa. Therefore, if before he departs for the United States the student 
decides to attend some other school, he should communicate with the issuing American 
consular office for the purpose of having such other school specified in the visa. Any other 
nonimmigrant student will not be admitted to the United States unless he intends to attend the 
school specified in the Form 1-20 or Form 1-94 which he presents to the immigration officer at 
the port or entry. 

A nonimmigrant student who does not register at the school specified in his temporary 
entry permit (Form 1-94), or whose school attendance is terminated, or who takes less than a 
full course of study, or who accepts unauthorized employment, thereby fails to maintain his 
status and must depart from the United States immediately. 

WITHDRAWAL PROCEDURE 

When a student decides to discontinue his course of study, he should 
complete a Change of Program voucher, which may be secured from the 
Records Office. Other regulations in this respect are listed under the 
captions "Change of Program," "Refunds," and "Checkout Proce- 
dures." In addition, dormitory students should leave a Dormitory Depar- 
ture card, properly completed, with the Dean of the home. These cards serve 
as a basis for issuing credit on accounting records. 

Students accepted on the Work Scholarship Plan should make arrange- 
ments for changes in their original contract with the head of the Department 
and also with the Director of Student Finance.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Students are classified by the Director of Admissions at the beginning 
of the school year. The student's classification for the year is determined by 
the amount of credit he has earned at the beginning of the college year. A 
student who may meet the hour requirement, but whose cumulative grade 
point average is below 2.00 will be listed in the next lower class until his 
cumulative grade point average is raised to 2.00 or better. Student classes are 
organized early in the fall quarter according to the following levels of 
academic achievement: 

Freshman 0- 36 quarter hours 

Sophomore 37- 83 quarter hours 

Junior 84-128 quarter hours 

Senior 129 quarter hours 

Postgraduate Students: Students who have completed a baccalaureate 
degree and are registered for work which cannot apply toward an advanced 
degree. 

Special Students: Students who have not completed the entrance re- 
quirements and are not eligible to enroll in a degree program. 

REGISTRATION 

For all students, new and returning alike, registration includes coun- 
seling, selection of courses, and payment of fees. Students are expected to 
register on the registration date as announced in the Bulletin. A registration 
envelope with full information on procedures will be issued at the Registrar's 
Office to the student formally accepted. 

Students are not officially registered for a course until 1) their ' 'regis- 
trationform' ' is turned in to the Records Office and 2) their names appear on 
the computerized class rosters of the teachers. 

LATE REGISTRATION 

Permission to register late must be obtained from the Academic Vice- 
President. Students failing to register during the scheduled registration 
periods will be assessed a late registration fee of $25. Class periods missed 
because of late registration will be counted as absences from the class. 
Ordinarily, no student will be allowed to register after the designated days 
have passed. All class work missed must be made up to the teacher's 
satisfaction. 

Permission to register late should ordinarily be obtained before registra- 
tion day. In any case the Dean must be presented satisfactory evidence to 
indicate that it was not possible for the student to register on the designated 
date. 

DROP, ADD, WITHDRAWAL 

If you think you want to add or drop a class or change a section after 
having completed registration for credit or audit, follow the procedures: 



Academic Policies 35 



Drop . Before the deadline (and sixth week of instruction) , 1) Get a drop 
voucher from the Registrar's Office or student Record's Office, 2) Fill it out 
and secure all proper signatures, 3) Return the voucher to the Registrar's 
Office immediately, for the effective date is not that written on the voucher 
but the date on which it is turned in to the Registrar, 4) Expect a "W" 
(withdrew) for the class if you drop before the sixth- week deadline, a ' 'WP' ' 
(withdrew passing) or "WF" (withdrew failing) if you drop V^^'' the 
deadline, 5) Forgetting or failing to drop officially through processing a 
voucher will result in an automatic "WF" or other final grade based on 
class work completed, 6) Drops are not permitted during the last two (2) 
weeks before final exams of a quarter, and 7) Refunds for dropped classes 
are discussed in this bulletin under the heading of "Refunds." 

Add. By or before the last day of registration, follow the same steps 
(1-3) as listed above under "Drop." Courses may not be added after 
registration closes although more time is allowed for dropping. 

A charge of $5 .00 is made for each change of schedule except when the 
change is made necessary by a) cancellation of a scheduled class or b) change 
of class time which renders it impossible for the student to maintain his or her 
original schedule. 

PRE-EXAMINATION WEEK 

Pre-examination Week is the week that precedes the final quarter 
examinations. During this week, no off-campus field trips, major examina- 
tions or extracurricular activities requiring student participation may be 
scheduled. This week should enable students to devote full time to the 
completion of course projects and to prepare for final examinations. 

EXAMINATIONS 

Finals. All students must take the final examination in each course at 
the time listed in the official time schedule. Exceptions may be made only by 
the Academic Vice-President. Should the examination schedule require a 
student to complete four examinations in one day, arrangements may be 
made with the Vice-President to complete one of the examinations at another 
time. 

SPECIAL EXAMS 

A student who presents safisfactory evidence of having competency or 
exposure in a certain area covered by a required course may meet an 
academic requirement by passing a test in the College Level or the Profi- 
ciency Examination Programs. 

Not more than forty-eight (48) hours of the total credit hours required 
for graduation may be earned. Seniors challenging a course by examination 
must do so before April 15. 

The various departments concerned will decide what subjects are open 
for examination for credit. The student must obtain a score on any such 
examination which would equate with a "C" grade in the course in order to 
be eligible for credit or waiver.

values are outlined below as follows: 

Grade Points 
Grade ^ . ' Per Hour 

A (superior) ^-^ 

A- 3.7 

B+ 3-3 

B (above average) ^-^ 

B- 2.7

I (incomplete) 0.0 

W (withdrew) 

WF (withdrew failing) ,^ 

WP (withdrew passing) 

AU (audit) 

NC (non-credit) 

GRADE POINT AVERAGE 

The grade point average (GPA) for the quarter is computed by totaling 
the grade points earned in all courses attempted and dividing by the total 
hours attempted. Credits for which an F or WF are received are included in 
calculating the grade point average. The symbols WP, AU, NC and P/F are 
disregarded in computing the grade point average. Incompletes are included 
in the GPA. 

PASS OR FAIL PROCEDURES 

To qualify for taking courses on a pass-fail basis a student must be a 
sophomore, junior, or senior, and must not be on academic probation. The 



L, 



Academic Policies 41 

total number of hours that may be taken on this basis is 16. The pass-fail 
system apphes to elective courses only. 

Approval for the P-F option should be obtained at the Records Office 
before the close of late registration. Registration changes in the process are 
final as of the last day to drop without academic penalty. 

NOTE: Some graduate and professional schools treat the "P" as a 
"D." 

GRADES AND REPORTS 

Grade reports are issued to the student and to the parents or guardians at 
the end of each quarter provided the student's account is in order. 

ERRORS AND CORRECTIONS 

Upon the receipt of a grade report, the student should carefully check it 
for correctness as to the courses recorded, credits, and grades. Any correc- 
tions needed must be taken care of within one week. No change will be made 
in the permanent record after two weeks from the issue of the grade report. 

DEAN'S LIST 

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.5, who carry a 
minimum of 15 quarter hours with no grade below a B, and no incompletes, 
are ehgible for membership on the dean's Hst. 

HONOR ROLL 

Students who carry a minimum of 12 hours and who maintain a grade 
point average of 3 .00, or above, during a given quarter with no grade below a 
"C" shall be considered HONOR STUDENTS for the quarter. 

HONORS CONVOCATION 

To give formal and public recognition for outstanding scholastic 
achievement, loyalty to College standards, and exemplary citizenship, the 
College conducts an annual Honors Convocation. To be eligible for partici- 
pation the student must have a cumulative grade point average of not less 
than 3.50 for a minimum of 24-32 hours earned at Oak wood College or a 
cumulative GPA of 3.25, and a minimum of 33 hours earned at O.C.

Magna Cum Laude . A student must have a grade point average of 3 . 50 . 

Summa Cum Laude. A student must have a grade point average of 3.75, 
or above. 

INCOMPLETE WORK 

When at the end of a quarter a student is behind in his or her class work, 
the teacher does not automatically grant a grade of "I" to that student for 



42 Oakwood College 

more time to do the requirements. If, liowever, because of interruptive 
illness or other unavoidable circumstances, a student should desire the 
privilege of receiving a grade of "I" (Incomplete) to allow more time to 
fulfill class requirements, that student may apply by doing all of the follow- 
ing before the end of final exam week: 

1. Obtain and fill out a "Request and Authorization for INCOM- 
PLETE" at the Office of Academic Affairs. 

2. Attach thereto a doctor's statement if the reason is medical. 

3. Obtain the signatures of the class instructor, the instructor's depart- 
ment head, and the Academic Vice-President. 

4. Return the form to the Vice-President's Office and receive an 
answer before leaving the campus. 

An "I" may be changed to a regular grade when the classwork is 
completed within the approved deadhne. Such a deadUne might range 
anywhere from a few days to several weeks but no longer than the sixth week 
of the next quarter even when the student is not registered the next quarter. 
The ' 7' ' automatically converts to an ' 'F' ' if not removed within the 
prescribed time. Should more time because of further illness or unavoidable 
circumstances be needed to remove the incomplete, the student may, before 
the deadline expires, request in writing an extension of time from the 
Academic Policies Committee. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION 

All students whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) is less than 
2.00 shall be placed on academic probation. Retained at Oakwood College 
under restricted privileges, students whose grade point average is less than 
2.00 must take part in the Special Instruction Program (SIP) conducted by 
the Developmental Learning Resource Center. Failure of such students to 
take part in the program may result in dismissal from the College. Students 
below 2.00 who fail to make acceptable progress in the estimation of the 
institution will be dropped. 

When a student is dropped for the first time because of poor scholar- 
ship, he or she is not eligible to be considered for readmission or reaccep- 
tance until after the end of two (2) quarters from the date of dismissal. When 
dropped the second time, the student becomes eligible for readmission or 
reacceptance after one (1) calendar year from the date of dismissal during 
which time the student must have attended another accredited college for at 
least one quarter, carrying a minimum of 12 quarter hours with no grade 
lower than "C." In both cases, to be so considered, the student must present 
a request to the Admissions Office. 

A student whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 is denied permission to 
represent the College in any official capacity or hold office in any student 
organization. 

The following is a summary list of requirements for a student on 
academic probation (GPA below 2.0): 



Academic Policies 43 

1. Limit registration to class load of 14 or less hours per quarter. 

2. Include in class load at least one course in which he or she has 
received a "D" or "F" and/or enroll in a remedial course as 
counseled by the academic advisor, and 

3 . Go to the Developmental Learning Resource Center for assistance. 

DEVELOPMENTAL LEARNING RESOURCE CENTER 

The Developmental Resource Learning Center is an academic support 
service which exists for the purpose of helping students who need assistance 
in any academic endeavor. This is accomplished by peer- tutoring and 
academic advisement under the supervision of a full-time coordinator. The 
center also maintains a wide variety of media materials and individualized 
study guides . The student (peer) tutors are generally upperclassmen recom- 
mended by the various departments. 

The Center is located on the ground floor of Cunningham Hall and is 
open during the day and evening hours in order to accommodate all students 
desiring such assistance. 

REPEATED COURSES 

Occasionally students express an interest in repeating a course if the 
earned grade cannot apply toward graduation or for other reasons. 

A student may repeat a course in which he has a grade of "C" only by 
permission of the Academic Policies Committee. 

A student who has earned a grade of "D" in a major, minor, cognate, 
or in other required courses may, on the advice of his major professor, repeat 
the course or take another course in the same area, if it is recommended. In 
either case, the professor expresses his desire in writing. 

The student who repeats a course is required to register in the regular 
way, repeat all the work of the course, including laboratory requirements 
and other required activities. 

If a student repeats a course, he may receive whatever grade he earns, 
but he may not repeat the course for credit more than once, unless the most 
recent final grade is "F." 

Each time a course is taken the student's record will show the hours for 
which he registered and the grade points earned. 

When a student is granted permission to repeat a course in which a 
failing grade has previously been recorded, his GPA will be computed on the 
basis. of the final grade earned. However, both grades will appear on his 
transcript. 

REMEDIAL CLASSES 

Credit hours for remedial work are not applied toward graduation. 

AUDITING COURSES 

Students may audit courses only by permission of the Vice-President

Those who are interested in such courses should register at the time of 
the regular registration. 

No credit is given for a course audited. 

The tuition charged is one-half the regular charge for credit. 

Laboratory courses may not be audited. 

A course started on the auditing basis cannot be changed to a credit 
basis after the first week of the course. 

CORRESPONDENCE 

No student shall take work by correspondence or enroll in another 
institution of higher learning while registered at Oakwood College without 
permission from the Academic Policies Committee. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION WORK 

Oakwood College recognizes and accepts credit for courses taken with 
the Home Study International, which is the Extension Division of the 
Associated Colleges of Seventh-day Adventists. 

A maximum of 18 quarter hours (12 semester hours) of correspondence 
work or extension work credit may apply toward a baccalaureate degree 
program and twelve hours toward a two-year terminal program. 

Ordinarily a student will be permitted to carry correspondence or 
extension work while in residence only if the required course is not obtaina- 
ble at the college. 

It is not recommended that seniors do any correspondence or extension 
work. In cases where this is an absolute necessity, the official transcript for 
the work completed must be in the Registrar's Office before April 15 of the 
quarter in which graduation is expected. 

All correspondence or extension work, whether taken while in resi- 
dence or during the summer, must be approved in advance by the 
Academic Policies Committee and Registrar respectively. Appropriate 
forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Correspondence and extension credit with a "D" grade is unaccepta- 
ble. No correspondence credit will be entered upon the student's record until 
he has earned a minimum of 16 hours in residence with an average of at least 
"C." (See Study Load). 

SEMINAR COURSES 

The only seminar courses offered are those already so labeled under 
departmental sections of the O. C. Bulletin. These require regular class 
attendance as based on the credit hour of the course. 

RESEARCH AND INDEPENDENT STUDY 

Certain departments offer a course entitled ' 'Research and Independent p 

Study ' ' for 1 to 4 hours credit to provide qualified students an opportunity to I 



c 



Academic Policies 45 



work on problems or topics of special interest, to engage in research 
projects, and to do scholarly study as advanced work. Following are funda- 
mental requirements for enrolling in such a course: The student will ( 1) be a 
junior or senior in residence with at least a B average (3 .00) , (2) make formal 
application at the time of regular registration by conferring with the head of 
his or her major department, (3) be a major in the department in which he or 
she desires the course "Research and Independent Study," (4) receive in 
writing from the Academic Vice-President final approval to register for the 
course, (5) receive in writing the specific requirements and expectations of 
the course from the department head. 

SUMMER SCHOOL 

Under the umbrella of the Graduate Extension Program with Andrews 
University, the College offers brief intensive courses and workshops during 
the summer at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. 

TRANSIENT LETTERS 

When an Oakwood student of regular standing finds it necessary to drop 
out of attendance for one quarter but desires to register at another college or 
university, he or she may request a "transient letter" from the Academic 
Policies Committee which recommends the student for temporary admission 
to that other school without the student's having to go through normal 
admission requirements. Transient letters, however, are not granted for 
attendance at colleges or universities within a fifty- mile radius of Hunts ville 
during the academic year. 

Transient credit with grades below "C" is unacceptable. Students from 
other schools desiring transient admission to Oakwood must provide official 
support from the home institution. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

The Records Office releases transcripts of a student's work at the 
college only upon the student's written request. Telephone requests cannot 
be honored. 

A student may secure an unofficial transcript for his use, but official 
transcripts must be sent directly to other colleges, organizations, and other 
approved sources. Official transcripts normally cannot be handcarried with- 
out prior permission of the receiving institution; however, if permission is 
granted, the transcript will be delivered in a sealed envelope. 

The college reserves the right to withhold all information concerning 
the record of any student who has unpaid accounts or other charges or who is 
delinquent in payment of student loans. No exceptions will be made. 

Two weeks from the time we receive your request should be allowed for 
the processing and mailing of the transcript. Official transcripts from other 
institutions which have been presented to Oakwood for admission and 
evaluation of credit become the property of Oakwood and are not reissued or 
copied for release. Each student is entitled to one (1) official transcript 
without charge. A fee of $2.00 is charged for each additional transcript. 



46 Oak WOOD College 



ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS 

Regular and prompt attendance at all classes, chapel exercises, wor- 
ships, and work assignments is expected of all students. Lack of attendance, 
therefore, implies lack of cooperation with the requirements of the College. 

CLASS ABSENCES 

Oakwood College operates under the following principles: 

It is the responsibility of each instructor to interpret the College poUcies 
concerning attendance and to make his interpretations known to his students 
at the beginning of each course. Every instructor has the right to count class ^ 

participation including attendance in calculating the term grade. It is the 
responsibility of the student to keep a record of his absences , to keep himself '— 

informed of the requirements of the instructor, to take all examinations at the 
time prescribed by the instructor, and to turn in all assignments when they 
are due. 



[ 



[ 



[. 



Other than the above, the following regulations are in effect: 

Attendance with punctuality is required at all classes and laboratory 
appointments. No class skips are allowed. If for any reason the total number 
of absences is double the number of credit hours of the course per quarter, 
credit may, at the discretion of the instructor, be forfeited and a grade of 
"FA" be recorded. Absences are counted from the ftrst official day of 
classes. Three tardinesses are equivalent to one absence. A tardiness of more 
than ten (10) minutes is considered an absence. 

Authorized leaves of absence from campus do not excuse the student 
from classes or reheve the student of required class work. The student, r^ 

however, must make arrangements with the teacher for every anticipated 
school trip and other authorized leaves at least 48 hours before the beginning ^ 

of such anticipated schedules. All make-up work, involving examinations 
and other class requirements, must be made up within seven (7) days after 
the absence is incurred. 

ASSEMBLY ABSENCES 

All registered students (on and off campus) are required to attend 
chapel. A student is allowed two unexcused absences from Assembly 
without penalty each quarter. A $5.00 charge will be made for each unex- 
cused absence in excess of two. 

Excuses for absences from Assembly must be submitted in writing to 
the Director of Student Services before the very next Assembly . Failure to do 
this will automatically result in an unexcused absence. 

Permanent excuses from Assembly may be granted in the case of 
unavoidable work responsibilities. In order to be eligible for a permanent 
excuse for a quarter, a written request, signed by the work supervisor, must 
be submitted to the Office of Student Services within 21 days of each 
quarter. 

STUDENT MISSIONARY PROGRAM ^ 

Each year, several Oakwood students go to foreign lands and serve as

missionaries. Their responsibilities range anywhere from religious leader- 
ship to teaching to industrial/vocational work. For details, contact the 
Department of Church Missions, Oakwood College. 

Following are the academic requirements for student missionaries: 

1 . The apphcant must have attained at least sophomore standing (min- 
imal 36 quarter hours) with a cumulative grade point average of 
"C" (2.00) or above, and no grade below "C" in all English 
Composition and Grammar courses. 

2. The apphcant must have a "B" (3.00) average or above in the 
subject area that he/she is expected to teach as a student missionary. 

3. Upon completion of a year of satisfactory service as a student 
missionary, the student shall receive four (4) hours of elective credit 
on a "pass/fail" basis in the area of "Student Foreign Service." 
Quahty of service is determined by a written evaluation from im- 
mediate supervisor or appropriate official over the student mission- 
ary. The student may opt for an additional four (4) hours should 
he/she secure prior approval from an instructional department and 
the Academic Policies Committee establishing that more 
specialized mission services will be experienced such as, but not 
limited to, teaching certain academic disciphnes. 

GRIEVANCE ON ACADEMIC MATTERS 

Any student who desires to express concern regarding instructional 
matters such as perceived unfairness or grading methodology or cheating or 
some misunderstanding within or without the classroom is encouraged to 
confer first with the teacher of the class and, if deemed necessary, with the 
teacher's department chairperson. The Academic Vice-President in such 
matters should be a last resort after the student and/or the teacher and/or the 
department head has gone over the particulars with the other two of these 
three levels of individuals.

BACHELOR OF GENERAL STUDIES DEGREE 

This degree program is an alternative to the B.A. and B.S. degree 
programs. It is designed to give the student who so desires an opportunity to 
choose a broad, interdisciplinary program of studies. The B.G.S. degree 
program, with its smaller Core Curriculum requirements, provides varied 
opportunities for students to cross departmental lines in obtaining the kind of 
education that would best prepare them for future study of hybrid disci- 
phnes. 

The following are the requirements of the B.G.S. degree program: 

1. A Core Curriculum of 48 QUARTER HOURS 

Behavioral and Social Sciences 12 hours 

One course must be in History 
Humanities 12 hours 

EN 101-102-103 
Natural Sciences 12 hours 

One course must be in Mathematics 
Religion 12 hours 

RE 101 or RE 111 

2. Instead of a major and a minor, the student will pursue concentrations in at least 
three disciplines of 36 hours each, with at least 16 upper division hours in each. A 
concentration in this context is defined as a unified, departmental area of study 
consisting of a minimum of 36 hours but without any specific course or cognate 
requirements. If one of the concentrations is Education, the transcript will specify 
"without Teacher Training." 

3. The satisfactory completion of at least 90 QUARTER HOURS at the junior and 
senior levels in any fields with no grade below a "C." Not more than 30 of the 90 
upper level hours or 60 of the 192 quarter hours would be accepted from any one 
department. 

4. To be admitted to the program, students must have completed the core curriculum 
and have a grade point average of at least 2.25. 

5. To remain in this program, each student is required to have his program of study 
approved by his faculty advisor and the Academic Policies Committee no later than 
the end of his sophomore year. 



DEGREES TO MEDICAL AND OTHER 
PROFESSIONAL STUDENTS 

Students who have been accepted to accredited medical, dental, or 
optometry schools before completing requirements for an undergraduate 
degree at Oakwood College may be awarded a Bachelor of Science in 
Natural Sciences upon successful completion of the first year of medical,

PRE-LAW 

Prof. Clarence Barnes, ^Jv/.yor 

Students interested in pre-law should counsel with the Pre-law Advisor 
concerning the entrance requirements of law schools. 

Since a college degree is necessar)/- for admission to most law schools , it 
is recommended that a student elect a major field of concentration not later 
than the beginning of the second year. Majors and minors in the fields of 
business administration, history, English, behavioral science and political 
science are generally preferred, although other majors may be acceptable. 
Electives in human physiology and anatomy and in mathematics are quite 
helpful. 

The booklet, Law Schools and Bar Admission Requirements , gives 
detailed information concerning a desirable academic background for the 
study of law. Interested students who desire a copy of this booklet should 
write to the following address:

UNDERGRADUATE SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM 

The primary objective of the Social Work Program is to prepare 
students for the professional entry level of Social Work practice. 

Students majoring in Social Work are prepared to receive through 
Oakwood College and the Department of Behavioral Sciences, the Bachelor 
of Social Work (BSW) degree. Students pursuing a Social Work degree do 
not declare a minor. 

Admission to the Social Work Program is the same as admission for any 
other discipline as stated in the College Bulletin. Any student wishing to be 
accepted into the Social Work Program must submit an application to the 
Social Work Program Director's Office when 48 credit hours of college 
work has been completed. (These 48 hours must be from the basic core 
requirements). The first two Social Work courses, Introduction to Social 
Welfare (SW 201) and Introduction to Social Work (SW 202) are also to be 
completed before formal admission to the program. Applications to the 
program are available in the Social Work Program Director's Office.

Social Work majors must also submit an application for Field Instruc- 
tion one (1) quarter before the field instruction is to begin. 

Students taking Field Instruction are required to complete a minimum 
of 400 clock hours in an assigned agency. The amount of time spent in 
assigned agencies renders students unable to carry more than one other 
course (Four additional hours) while engaged in Field Instruction. 

TRANSPORTATION TO FIELD AGENCIES IS THE RESPONSI- 
BILITY OF THE STUDENT. 

A total of 1 92 quarter hours is required for graduation , 60 of these hours 
must be at the upper division level. 

No grade below "C" (2.0) in any course may apply toward the major. 

Students in other discipUnes who wish to acquire a basic understanding 
of Social Work principles may avail themselves of the several courses not 
reserved for Social Work majors. 

Detailed information on the Social Work Program is outlined in the 
Social Work Student Handbook, available from the Social Work Program 
Office and/or at the Social Work Resource Lab, Green Hall.

The Department is interested with providing its students both the 
breadth of understanding and the opportunity to explore many areas in 
biology in greater depth . The required courses and cognates in the concentra- 
tion establish a core of fundamental knowledge in biological and related 
science. Students then build on this base from a variety of other courses 
(electives), laboratory, and discussions that explore areas within biology 
from the basic level to current research topics. The development of labora- 
tory and fieldwork skills is encouraged. The major in biology prepares 
students for immediate employment as well as for professional training in 
medicine and biomedical research.

EDUCATION (ED) AND 
VOCATIONAL EDUCATION (VE) 

Teacher education at Oakwood College prepares teachers for the early 
childhood, elementary, and secondar>' levels. Oakwood College is an in- 
stitutional member of the American Association for Colleges of Teacher 
Education (AACTE). The teacher education program is approved by the 
Alabama State Department of Education, the Seventh-day Adventist Gen- 
eral Conference Department of Education, and the National Council for the 
Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) . 

Through reciprocity, graduates from approved programs may receive 
public school certification in approximately 37 states, and church school 
certification throughout North America. 

Graduates in education are employed in a wide variety of settings both 
within the denomination and in the public sector. Some graduates pursue 
advanced studies in such areas as school administration, guidance and 
counseling, special education, school psychology, and early childhood 
education and related fields. 

PROGRAMS IN TEACHER EDUCATION

The Department of English seeks to develop effective programs for 
training all students to read with speed and comprehension, to speak and 
write clearly, and to listen and recall correctly. It also seeks to enable 
non- majors as well as majors to perceive the importance of literature as a 
source of vital insights into the problems and achievements of men — ancient 
or modem. A major program is offered for those intending to pursue 
graduate study in English, and for those preparing to teach on the elementary 
and secondary levels. 

All entering freshmen are required to take EN 101- 102- 103 in sequence 
unless their high school grades, ACT and/or other test scores show evidence 
of proficiency in these areas, in which event the students may be exempted 
from EN 101 and possibly EN 102. Students are expected to complete EN 
101-102-103 by the end of the freshman year. 

Any student who receives a grade below "C" in any composition 
course will be required to repeat the course. 

A grade below "C" in any English course may not apply on a major or 
minor.

AKin DHVQir^Q Associate Professor: Dobbins 

MnU rrlTOlUO Assistant Professor: Monroe 

MATHEMATICS (MA) AND PHYSICS (PH) 

The specific objectives of this department are in agreement with the 
general objectives of the college. 

Mathematics may be classifed according to two general categories, 
pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics is very 
abstract, and proof (in the sense of a deductive system) is its most important 
concern. On the other hand, applied mathematics has arisen out of attempts 
to solve problems m the natural sciences and, in particular, the physical 
sciences. This department proposes to present these two points of view as a 
combined and unified whole. 

The department further proposes to develop an appreciation by the 
student of the fact that the One who created and upholds the universe also 
made the integers and gave man the mental power and the will to develop the 
rest of what is called mathematics. 

Those who plan to teach in secondary schools must also minor in 
Education, and meet the requirements for teacher certification. 

Mathematics majors are encouraged to minor in at least one of the 
following subjects: chemistry, physics, or business administration 

No grade below "C" may apply on a major or minor.

MUSIC (MU) 

The music department provides a challenging, professional, intellec- 
tual and Christian environment for the serious study of the musical arts. 
Students who are committed to developing their talent to its highest for 
service to God and to their fellowmen are encouraged to apply. 

DEGREE PROGRAMS 

BACHELOR OF ARTS IN MUSIC 

The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music is a performance- 
oriented degree. It prepares the student for graduate study leading to a 
professional performance career or to an academic career. 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MUSIC EDUCATION 

The Bachelor of Science in Music Education degree offers a course of 
study that leads to a professional teaching career. Upon completion of this 
program the graduate is qualified to teach choral and instrumental music 
from kindergarten through secondary school. 

MINOR IN MUSIC 

The music minor is designed for the person who has a musical 
background in vocal or instrumental music and wishes to enrich his knowl- 
edge. While serving as a source of personal artistic growth, the minor may 
also serve as a second teaching field.

Music 165 

ADMISSION TO THE DEGREE PROGRAM 

Prospective music majors at Oakwood College should have had previ- 
ous music study and experience in ensemble performance. A student's 
individual performance skills should be at the intermediate level. Deficien- 
cies in musical background will require that the student take Basic Musician- 
ship , MU 111-112-113, which may result in an extension of time in fulfilling 
the degree requirements. Applicants may audition before the music faculty 
either in person or by sending a current tape. The audition should include 
selections from each of the musical art periods. Please contact the chairper- 
son for further details. 

JURY 

At the close of each quarter or any other time selected by the faculty, 
majors and minors in music will perform, for the music faculty, selections 
from the compositions they have studied in their area of performance. 

ENSEMBLE 

Successful participation in one of the departmental organizations is 
required for all music majors and minors each quarter they are in residence. 

PIANO PROFICIENCY 

A proficiency at the keyboard is important for all majors whatever their 
chosen performance area. The proficiency may be achieved by taking piano 
instruction. When the student feels he is ready to perform the proficiency 
requirements, he may request a hearing by members of the music faculty. 

RECITAL PERFORMANCE 

Performance skill is achieved only by doing. Thus students are given 
opportunities to perform at weekly forums and at frequent general recitals. 
Majors and minors are also presented in solo recitals. Music Education 
majors prepare a forty-minute senior recital while the Bachelor of Arts 
candidates present a thirty-minute junior recital and an hour senior recital. 
Minors give a twenty-minute program during either their junior or senior 
year. One month before the approved recital date the candidate performs the 
memorized program before the music faculty. 

RECITAL ATTENDANCE 

Because a knowledge of musical style and performance techniques are 
gained from attendance at live performances, music majors and minors are 
required to attend departmental recitals and other on-campus programs 
approved by the music faculty. Also, as often as possible, the music 
department in cooperation with the Huntsville Symphony arranges for stu- 
dents to attend concerts at a reduced rate. 

MUSIC MATERIALS FEE 

In order to be certain that music is available when needed and to save 
the student the inconvenience of having to purchase his own, the Music 
Department assesses each person who takes individual lessons a Music 
Materials Fee and purchases the music for the student. The fee is payable 



166 Oakwood College 

directly to the Music Department DURING REGISTRATION (please note 
that the fee is not paid to Student Accounts or the Business Office). Please 
see the Music Department for the current amount of the fee.

RELIGION 

AND THEOLOGY 



Professors: Reaves, Warren (Chair) 

Associate Professors: Melancon, Samson, Pitt 

Assistant Professors: Lavender, Fraser, Shand 



RELIGION (RE) AND BIBLICAL LANGUAGES (BL) 

The sub-areas of this department are three, namely: (1) RELIGION 

^^Mr^fl^^^c^^^ EDUCATION, (2) THEOLOGY, and (3) BIBLICAL 
LAJNuUAGES. 

The RELIGION major follows a tailored course of study to prepare for 
Bible Worker Instructorship, Literature Ministry, Medical Ministry 
Foreign Missions, and Laymen Leadership. The RELIGIOUS EDUCA- 
TION major, in addition to those areas mentioned under the RELIGION 
major, prepares the student for Classroom Teaching (Elementary, Secon- 
dary , and Higher Education levels) . THEOLOGY is for the major who looks 
Jk A ^f ^"J' Evangelist ministries (with further ministerial training at the 
SDA Theological Seminary of Andrews University), and to the Military 
Chaplaincy. BIBLICAL LANGUAGES as an area offers a minor which 
includes Greek and Hebrew. 

A guide to the specialty areas of full-time teachers in the department is 
as follows: 

Fraser (Pastoral Administration) 

Lavender (Old Testament Studies) 

Melancon (New Testament Studies) 

Pitt (Systematic Theology) 

Reaves (Homiletics and Urban Preaching Ministry)

Samson (New Testament) 

Warren (Homiletics and Biblical Studies Preaching) 

Because of the large number of persons preparing for the pastoral/ 
evangelistic ministry and the variety of new areas within the church for 
religious services, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT EVERY 
STUDENT IN THEOLOGY HAVE ALSO A DOUBLE (or SECOND) 
MAJOR in which case no MINOR is required. Such a student also takes a 
shorter list of "COGNATE" classes. 

The Department recognizes the true concept of Ministry is not limited 
to pastoral or professional ministry but is broad enough to include service in 
a number of areas. Accordingly the Religion and Theology program is 
structured to undergird a diversity of Career options and to develop multi- 
skilled minrstries. 

Departmental majors must follow one of several study programs pro- 
viding a double profile of competence in ministry and related study areas.* 
Programs are as follows: 

A. Ministry and Management (may take 5 years) 

B. Ministry and Human Services 

C. Ministry and Mass Communications 

D. Ministry and Religious Education 

E. Ministry and Health Science 

F. Ministry and BibUcal Studies 

3.0 GPA Requirement in Biblical Languages 

G. Ministry and Literature Evangelism 

H. Para- Professional Programs in Ministry 

Students must consult their Program Advisor or the Religion office for 
the checksheet Usting the specific courses required within each of the study 
programs. Students pursuing the theology curriculum are strongly urged to 
complete HI 444 by first quarter of their senior year. 



* Exceptions allowed only after consultation with the Department. 

ADMISSION TO THEOLOGY PROGRAM 

Entrance to college does not qualify a student for admission to the 
Theology (Ministerial Training) Program. Eligibility for admission to the 
Theology Program is determined after completion of the sophomore year in 
college. The first two years of the college experience provide the student an 
opportunity to qualify for entrance into the Theology Program. Students 
considering a career in Pastoral Ministry should consult the Department of 
Religion and Theology for appropriate information concerning admission 
into the Theology Program. 

Criteria for admission into the Theology Program include the follow- 
ing:
